  • Moneyball (2011). This movie is not specifically about betting, but it explores realistically the notion of sports performance analysis, data and statistics. It’s a great watch to understand sport predictions and a great movie with Brad Pitt as the main actor.

  • Two for the Money (2005). Matthew McConaughey and Al Pacino play two sports betting pros who join forces in the high-rolling betting world. The movie deals with the psychology of sports betting, the notion of greed and personal boundaries.

  • Uncut Gems (2019). This dark film shows Adam Sandler in the dangerous role of a compulsive gambler struggling to pay off his bets and who engages in a series of high-odds wagers. The tense and raw production depicts the dark side of betting.

  • Let it ride (1989). This movie follows a cab driver who wins big on the horse races after receiving a hot tip. This underrated film is an excellent comedy that will grant you a truckload of laughs, with many funny scenes and oddball characters.

That’s it! Watching these movies will make you a more knowledgeable cinema fan, a better bettor, and will provide you with hours of entertainment. Don’t hesitate to give them a chance! Most of these movies can be found on your usual streaming service. For rare finds like Let it ride, you might need to get them via an e-commerce platform. Enjoy!
